SLOVAKIA

BRATISLAVA, MALOKARPATSKÝ WINE WAY, FATRA, TATRAS, UNESCO MONUMENTS

I travel to Slovakia often and I enjoy it. I like Slovak folklore, nature, gnocchi, and lokše and Slovaks – their sense of humor and hospitality.

It is a land of many colors and tastes. With groups I enjoy hiking and enjoying the natural and cultural monuments. Personally, I fell in love with the northern part, which in addition to popular mountain destinations in the Low and High Tatras offers charming sights such as Spis Castle (UNESCO), Levoca town with the altar of Master Paul (UNESCO), a number of caves including Dämenovská and Dopšinská (UNESCO) and the mountain village Vlkolínec. All this in a small area with short distances to drive!

Bratislava is another frequent destination of my trips to Slovakia. I always look forward to coffee and ice cream on the UFO lookout tower with spectacular views of Bratislava Castle and the Danube.

Since I am a good white wine fan, I prepare visits for my groups to wineries on the Small Carpathian Wine Route (Svätý Jur, Pezinok, Modrá). Sitting in a cellar that is several centuries old with quality wine, tasty food and stories of a friendly winemaker about his work is an experience that you will long remember.
